Friday 6pm - Sunday 4pm
Power Up returns to share our knowledge and understanding about environmental justice, rights and the planning system.
Power Up is a unique training weekend designed to help you get the knowledge, confidence and contacts to use the legal and planning system to make a difference where you live.
Power up will leave you feeling inspired and energised - ready to apply new skills to your local issues
Who is Power Up for?
You don't have to be an expert - whether you're already involved in a local campaign or completely new to campaigning. Just as long as you're interested in making your area a fairer, cleaner and healthier place - then Power Up is for you.
How will Power Up help you and your community?
Power Up will give you:
· Campaign knowledge and practical tools to share with your community.
· The confidence to speak up and get involved in making decisions.
This is particularly important because of the Government's proposed changed to the planning system in the Localism Bill.
